IWC Meeting Opens in Japan

from the would-you-like-blubber-with-that? dept.

Japan is reportedly pushing hard for a resumption of commercial whaling at the just-opened annual conference of the International Whaling Commission. This would allow an expansion of Japan’s “harvesting” of whales beyond the 400 to 500 they currently kill each year for “scientific research” purposes. Japan’s IWC representatives claim that whales are becoming so numerous that they pose a threat to the world’s fish populations. I was going to invent an absurd quotation on that, but then decided there wouldn’t be any point. The whole thing is thoroughly depressing, anyway.
